Some Central Coast transit agencies are offering free bus rides to make it easier for the community to give back to the planet this Earth Day, Monday, April 22.

This one-day initiative aims to promote cleaner air, reduce carbon footprint and inspire the public to choose more sustainable transportation options.

Automobiles are identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions.

Participating transit agencies include:

  • SBCAG Clean Air Express
  • Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District
  • Passage in the Santa Maria area
  • Passage through the Santa Ynez Valley

Santa Barbara County isn’t the only participating area. In Ventura County, all transportation agencies, including the Ventura County Transportation Commission, are offering free rides on Earth Day.
